Been real good to see how everybody giving it up, right now. Not just quantity, the quality of the music is shining through. Tonight's tune is a joint we've touched on. This time, we got visuals! Whata Mess dug deep on his Long Verses With The Pope album. So this video is a pretty close picture to the tone set not only for St. George, but the entire project.
A throwback to the grimy days. No crazy special effects, just a raw scenery barely lit. The unknown location and spooky wall writings send chills. Grone Da Radikal directed, plus cameos as the only other person that Mess. Aggressive bars and delivery line up with background and cinematics. He reps Camden and Vineland of New Jersey. Let's just say, Gloucester County. Now, linking up with Mess in West Palm Beach.
The beat by Luis Blue is the element necessary. Bringing grittiness from Germany. You could tell it's not just rhymes on a track, or people with a camera. All of it fits together for that eerie feel.Another win for the loops, Whata Mess knows how to bring the personality out a producer's creation. This vid is not for the softees, it's here to make a statement. Real rap is here to stay. I appreciate artists going hard organically, especially behing so close in radius.
Get to YouTube and run it up. Also, get your hands on the album at Dat Piff. It takes nothing to follow and share, please do so. Thanks to the readers showing support. All the blessings pour on you from Yahweh!

Got another coincidental situation to talk about. I'm aware of how the internet shortens distance and I usually write about people far away. I've mentioned tonight's subject before, as I covered Diaz Brothers by Cocareef. Who is from New Jersey. Whata Mess made an appearance on the creative piece, and currently launching his own mixtape.
Little did I know he lives within fifteen to twenty minutes away from my rest in West Palm Beach, FL. Mess spills personality across a spread of dope tracks by dope producers. Including a favorite of mine, DJ Pain 1 and familiar friend Four Limbs, plus we get introduced to some, as well. I'm feeling the sounds of Drunk, Richie Bane, The Heretic, and Syer Esso. More rare digs provided by Rob Mil, Lowkey, and Luis Blue.
Whata Mess is a Boom Bap native. After the intro gets under your skin he throws lyrics explaining society's poisons. The first quarter is very transparent. He uses himself as the scapegoat facing temptation, fighting to not be a product of the environment. Raw flows embracing his Latin bloodline will impress you.
I like the one-liner style through St. George,as well as Don't Move An Inch. The artist defends authentic Hip Hop with Johnny Props. Fakes want no parts trying to rebuttal. Features are first class with the revisiting, Nowaah The Flood. Always a pleasure to hear a verse from him. Also show love for RAN introduction, Grone Da Radikal. Who could be heard sharpening steel on two joints with Mess.
The scenes are vivid on LVWTP, some crime scenes, but delivered clearly. Originality is constant, good reason to get to Dat Piff and start downloading. I'm grateful for the positive reactions from readers. May Yeshua bless you!
